Poll: John McCain Now the ‘Most Unpopular Senator’ in the Nation

The bad news just keeps getting worse for disgraced Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

In January his own party stunned McCain by censuring him in a landslide vote in response to his betrayals on everything from illegal alien amnesty, to caving on ObamaCare, to support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria. It was an unprecedented and humiliating political act.

And now a new poll reveals McCain is the least popular senator in the country of those surveyed by Public Policy Polling, with low marks from members of his own party, independents and Democrats.

That will simply encourage him to entrench himself in his current role as a Rino and the morons in AZ will likely continue to return him to the Senate as long as he decides he wants to be there.

Key question: Are the voters in AZ dumb enough to reelect Juan McPain to the Senate again should he decide to run for U.S. Senator again?

I knew his father, Adm. McCain, and John is not anything close to his father in character or common sense.

Just low hanging fruit that fell on its head when it dropped off the family tree.

I’ve been a Zonie since the mid 90s. It has since been taken over by Californicators and illegals.

There’s your answer.

I was with Senator McCain yesterday. He helped me with something very important to my District and Arizona as a whole. I voted for the censure. But I thanked him for stepping up and doing the right thing for AZ. I am not defending him, I’m saying he has done some good things and continues to.

That would make him less popular than Harry Reid, which I didn’t think was possible.

If I were in that situation, I’d consider suicide the easy option.

“I’ve been a Zonie since the mid 90s. It has since been taken over by Californicators and illegals.”

First of all, that’s a disgusting way to describe Californians. Secondly, it would be an interesting exercise to see just who you’ve been electing to public office. My bet is that they are not “California Transplants.” In the Colorado recalls, your “pals” in Colorado were decrying the “fact” that Californians had caused the manifold problems in that state, but you know what, none of the recalled legislators were originally from California, but one was from New York. It besmirches the dialog that seeks to find solutions that is the purpose of FR, for people like you, in order to feel good, to assign your problems to someone else.

Whats disgusting is califorrnicators leaving that hellhole and exporting their socialism to formerly conservative areas.

Its like hipsters in Brooklyn ‘pioneering’ into all areas of the place and destroying it.

If you look at the poll, it’s worse than that. The voters are dumb enough to elect Gabby Giffords in his place.

” It besmirches the dialog that seeks to find solutions that is the purpose of FR,...”

Did you get that from a Lib handbook BTW? Because I have yet to hear a conservative use their exact language so well.

Last I knew FR’s mission statement wasn’t to ‘dialog’ anything. It was to stem the tide of libs screwing up the country.

Wait, this is sarcasm right? Got me. for a moment I thought you were serious.

As with Obama and other Constitution-ignoring Democrats and RINOs including McCain, it is possible that the polls are now being a little more honest about their popularity, or lack thereof.

Yup. It is happening. Because few leave the reason they left wherever, back there, and drag it with them.

Any Senator can perform an “act of usefulness”, but McCain has done more damage to this country, IMO, than any other in recent memory and despite his acts of usefulness and service to this country, I personally condemn him as a traitor to his oaths and a useless waste of skin.

Just my opinion.

I don’t like anyone making scummy remarks about the place where I live, and in doing so, you out yourself as someone who isn’t serious. I’ve lived in California all my life, I’ve never “Californicated” anyone or anything, and I view your comment as disgusting. Furthermore, your comment suggests that ALL Californians who move to Arizona or any other state for that matter, bring with them nothing but liberal attributes which I would also dispute.

Too many freepers have actually lived in California for the description “Californicators” to raise any ire.

And for those who haven’t lived there, there are threads every year linking to sites chronicling the Folsom Street Fair, and Burning Man in pictures and video.

So can the utterly unwarranted indignation.

Won’t fly.

He did the right thing in 2010 and voted against tuition for illegals.

Harry Reid had 55 votes.

McCain thought he was part of the Tea Party landslide.

No its a term that the state earned through its actions. San PORNando anyone?

Sure there are good [people. but ‘Californication’ by the Chilli Peppers was a best selling song afterall. Again...not my original idea. YOUR people named it.

You certainly have the right!! I have been here since the 1960s and it is unrecognizable today. The illegals started their take over in earnest in the 1980s. It was probably right after the infamous Simpson-Mazzoli Act of Reagan fame. Remember what that RAT fat Teddy 'Swimmer' Kennedy promised us?

In 1986 Senator Kennedy said, ‘This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.’

I live just across the river from Needles CA and worked at area newspapers/regional throughout the 2000s. So I had a semi inside look at what Cali and Illegals were doing.

When i got here you could still do the ‘Leave it to Beaver’ thing and leave doors unlocked. Not any more. Cali 3 strikers on strike 2 came here to avoid the third and the illegals opened the drug corridor to Vegas into a freeway.

Among members of his own party, McCain is at 35 percent approval to 55 percent disapproval; the comparable figures among Democrats are 29 percent to 53 percent, and among independents, 25 percent to 55 percent.

This makes perfect sense.

Mister McCain has frequently snubbed his own party in order (one suspects) to curry favor w the NYT, and etc. However, nobody likes a (political) turncoat, and lookie what happens to opinion.

The (sorta) tragic irony is that likely every GOPer and indy would now have a higher opinion of McCain if he had only chosen to be true to conservative (aka American) principles. (He might have even become president.)
